2016-2017 Catalog

Dropping Courses

During the add period, students may drop individual courses by using Mustang WebAdvisor or by coming to Mustang Central. No signatures are necessary and the course will not appear on the student’s permanent record. No grade is assigned.

Following the designated add period, students may withdraw from a regular full semester course 10 school days after mid-semester. They may withdraw from “blocked” courses until 5 course days after the middle of the course for 12 and 8-week courses and 2 days after the middle of the course for 5-week courses. A grade of “W” will be assigned for a withdrawal and does appear on the student’s permanent record.

Following the drop deadline, a student may not withdraw from courses except in very unusual circumstances that involve severe medical, emotional or personal problems. Emergency withdrawals are for all, not selected, courses. Students must request in writing this type of withdrawal. In the case of a medical reason, a doctor’s excuse is necessary. All requests will require documentation. Such instances will require approval of the Registrar in Mustang Central and the concerned instructor. No withdrawals will be permitted during the final week of the semester or after a semester is over. Although the following procedure may be initiated by the instructor, students are expected to take full responsibility for dropping courses.

Students who wish to drop courses should:

  1. Obtain one of two forms from Mustang Central:
    1. A drop form for students who are dropping one or more of the courses for which they are registered.
    2. A withdrawal form for students who are dropping all of the courses for which they are registered (or the only course for which they are registered).
  2. Follow the instructions on the form. Return the form to Mustang Central or appropriate off-site office before the drop is official.
  3. Mustang WebAdvisor may be used, in lieu of forms, if the student is not dropping all courses. Complete withdrawls must be made through Mustang Central or an Outreach Office.
